DONG Energy

The Organizing Committee of Aarhus Case Competition 2017 is proud to present DONG Energy as this year’s Case Company.


DONG Energy is one of the leading energy groups in Northern Europe, headquartered in Denmark. Around 6,500 ambitious employees are engaged in developing, constructing and operating offshore wind farms; generating power and heat from our power stations; providing energy to residential and business customers on a daily basis; and producing oil and gas.


We divide our operations into four businesses: Wind Power, Bioenergy & Thermal Power, Distribution & Customer Solutions, and Oil & Gas.


The way we produce energy is changing rapidly. Since DONG Energy was established in 2006 by a merger of six Danish energy companies: DONG, Elsam, Energi E2, Nesa Københavns Energi and Frederiksberg Forsyning, we have transformed from one of the most coal-intensive utilities in Europe to a global leader in renewable energy. We are the world leader in deploying offshore wind, helping to reduce carbon emissions and harvest Europe’s own energy resources. At the same time, we are taking the lead in converting existing coal and gas-fired power stations to sustainable biomass, providing a heat and power supply which is both green and flexible.


Our mission is to develop and enable energy systems that are green, independent and economically viable. Skilfully navigating the forces of change in the energy industry will be key to our continued success.


Our vision is to lead the energy transformation. We want DONG Energy to be recognized as a winner in European energy.


The way we work is based on five guiding principles:


Integrity: We are open and trustworthy and uphold high ethical standards

Passion: We are passionate about what we do and proud of what we achieve

Team: We value diversity and collaborate in a non-hierarchical, respectful and trusting way

Results: We set the bar high, take ownership and get the right things done

Safety: We never compromise on safety standards

That is why we as a workplace want to lead the way when it comes to offering our employees the best opportunities for a daily life with a high level of energy.


“At DONG Energy, we’re excited to be selected as the case company for the Aarhus Case Competition 2017. It’s an opportunity to get an outside-in perspective on our strategic direction and the opportunities and challenges in the energy sector.
